  • What is the one thing that a good chunk of NL contenders have in common? Bullpen woes.
  • I don’t want to bring up a huge thing but I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t mention it.
  • Back a few months ago I mentioned that, in this section, I’d bring up some obscure sports that I love to better educate you on them, as well as have a place to discuss it. Well, last weekend in the Australian Football League, a dude straight punched another dude which caused him to have a broken jaw and he might lose up to five teeth.
  • The NBA announced both their holiday schedule as well as their full slate. If you care.
  • Yall all saw the Charlotte Hornets retro court right? Good.
